VIDEO:

The Dark Knight Rises arrives at blu ray with MPEG-4 AVC 1080p 2.40 and 1.78 (Imax sequence). A few words about its predecessor The Dark Knight: Although its transfer earned top marks, however, contrast was raised to detail-quashing extremes, colour boosted, and severe edge halos littered the image. Thankfully, the transfer of the Dark Knight Rises did not suffer the same fate. Cinematographer Wally Pfister's wind-swept Gotham palette is rich, satisfying and gorgeous. Warm hues adorn the decadent homes of the city's elite, dusty desert colours blanket Bruce's stint in prison, and crisp white snow falls on a captive Gotham. Colours are positively radiant at times. Black levels are deep and inky. Detail is nothing short of extraordinary. Edges are sharp and natural and fine textures are well resolved and revealing (particularly during the film's IMAX sequences). (5/5)

AUDIO:

The real showpiece of The Dark Knight Rises is its sternum-splitting, rib-cracking, ground-pounding DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track. While it obviously isn't as thunderous or jaw-dropping as its IMAX counterpart, it still boasts remarkable power, prowess and presence. The opening hijack scene is worth the cost of admission alone. Hans Zimmer's score is simply enveloping and invigorating. Dialogue is clear. It is a great soundtrack to enhance the video. (5/5)

MOVIE:

Christopher Nolan and his creative inner circle -- co-writer David S. Goyer, co-writer Jonathan Nolan, producing partner Emma Thomas, cinematographer Wally Pfister, composer Hans Zimmer, and many more -- finally concludes their Batman saga. A journey begun nearly a decade ago, Batman Begins marked a new, dare we say, serious era of the super hero film. Grounded and ultra-real.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sophisticated Cinema , but Falls Short Sept. 9 2014
By Greg TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
A bold attempt to make a conclusion to a powerful franchise that falls short in places. Who is Selina Kyle/Catwoman in this film? "Smart and sexy" sure, but that's an outline for a character, not a description. She wasn't well developed and she barely has any background. Was she an orphan? With all hers skills why was she never able to make enough money to get settled into something less dangerous (which seems to be what she wants?) We saw what motivated Bruce into becoming Batman, so what made her into the best cat burglar in the city, and one so masterful in combat that she can fight confidently at Batman's side (taking down guys twice her size?) SPOILER: Likewise, as Bane's back story turns out to be Talia al Ghul's, he doesn't have much development either (he's just some lug who lovingly protected a young girl for reasons we aren't given.) Talia turns out to be the 'main villain' all along, but we spent too little time to get to know her, so we don't really care. Her brief love affair with Bruce wasn't that affective and added nothing to the story or to the characters. What good Bruce sees in Selina Kyle is beyond me. She protects a little kid for stealing an apple once, but besides that she's just a desperate-minded opportunist who just becomes good in the end because Bruce sees something in her, somehow. The Pit subplot just feels like filler; a way to keep Bruce/Batman distracted so he can then come and save it. It slows the pace at a time when it should be accelerating.

Overall though, it's still sophisticated cinema and was a good effort. The best part of this film was John Blake. I found him to be the most genuine and likeable character of the trilogy. When he discovers the Batcave I was actually interested to see him become Robin.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dark Knight Supreme. Aug. 7 2014
By W. H. Boudreau TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
The Dark Knight Rises is excellent movie making. Make no mistake while this is an outstanding superhero genre film…it “rises” (pun intended) to become so much more. Like its predecessor 2008’s “The Dark Knight”…this is an Oscar worthy masterpiece. While the Marvel/Disney juggernaut has the market cornered on Superhero films, in particular the linking of storylines into phases, DC, via the inimitable Chris Nolan has the humanistic, palpable meatier storytelling. Chris Nolan has made a handsome billionaire the subject of the viewer’s sympathy and compassion. He on the surface has it all, wealth, fame and prestige….but this film demonstrates the enormous physical toll such heroics bring. You might admire the Batman/Bruce Wayne, but with all the physical abuse he endures, you would not want to be him.

The film comes at an apt time, when the 1 percent argument is powerfully present. When one has a lot, one can occasionally have a lot to lose. Conversely, it is rather foolish to think that so few can have so much without any form of social outcry. Enter Bane, Batman’s nemesis, played with utter brilliance and demonic panache by Tom Hardy. He too is one to watch, if only for his physical transformations (see Bronson and Rock N Rolla). It is hard to believe this GQ looking fellow could become the physical monster that is Bane. His performance is made all the more formidable when one considers his face is nearly completely covered except for his eyes, through which he conveys everthing from contempt to humor and enraged fury. Though some have mocked his “Conneryesque” accent/speech affecation, I would offer that is merely adds to his mystique and larger than life character. Nothing about this character is low key.
